According to British government's chief scientific adviser, the novel coronavirus may trigger new waves of the COVID-19 pandemic in the coming years.

The novel coronavirus will likely return several times in the coming years, triggering new waves of the COVID-19 pandemic, the British government's chief scientific adviser said on Thursday.

"I think it's quite probable that we will see this virus coming back in different waves, over a number of years," Patrick Vallance told lawmakers.
